Hello lovely friends.
We can make excitement with our children easily. We can make fun with children to fulfill spare time. By this way we can make them happy. It is a good time to do during this pandemic. They will feel our presence as parents. We play roles as teachers, brothers and even their friends at same time. So we must provide excitement with just simple things such making paper crafts. In this post I will explain how to make a Mouse from paper step by step.

Use Origami paper

Origami paper make easier for the art of paper folding. But if you have no this papaer don't worry. We can use another kinds of paper such as newspapers, magazines, brochures or other papers but you must make it has square shape.
For this craft I use origami paper too.
